I loved almost all of the Fall / Winter trends that came down the runway this season because, with the exception of red boots (I’m totally lost on this one!), I’ve been rocking these styles on and off for all of my 20s!

15 Modern & Chic No-Carve Pumpkins You Can DIY in an Afternoon

I always *plan* to carve a real pumpkin every year but it never happens. If you’re like me, and you love Autumn decor, but you wish it sort of seamlessly looked amazing with the rest of  your home, then this round-up is for you! My house is white, natural wood and gray, so every season it’s essentially a blank decorating slate.
